Paddock to Plate Farm Tours
Mid Canterbury is one of the earliest developed pastoral and grain farming areas in New Zealand.
Get a taste of one of the most iconic properties in the Mid Canterbury district with this unique opportunity –
This historic farm was developed by John Grigg who came out from Cornwall England, to the Canterbury plains in1864. He drained a swamp, formed the Hinds river and within 20 years had a vibrant farming Estate of 14,500 hectares. The Estate became a self-supporting community with its own post office, school, general store, flourmill, church, smithy, bakery and cookhouse. 150 years later the fifth & sixth generation descendants of John Grigg, Bill and son James Thomas, now farm the Estate.
A lot has changed but some things have stayed the same.
An opportunity to visit Longbeach Estate has been arranged by Simon Eddington
